Ambassador Rerrick, a male Octanti
In 2371, the Borg Collective began to assimilate the Octanti. Despite their resistance, 11 billion Octanti had been assimilated before the U.S.S. Voyager made first contact with survivors in 2375. Similar to the Brunali, the Octanti used engineered viruses to fight the Borg, which they introduced into the Collective by having members of their own species willingly assimilated.
- “Parein System Patrol”: The player encounters Octanti Captain in the Parein System, where he is attempting to destroy ships belonging to the Borg Cooperative.
- “Unity”: The player joins liberated Borg Logan Kurtis in an effort to repair Octanti Captain Xar's ship and protect it from the Vaadwaur.
- “Alliances”: Seven of Nine and the player try to convince the Octanti to join the Delta Alliance to defend against the Vaadwaur threat. However, as the Borg Cooperative of liberated drones is part of the Alliance, the Octanti deny any support. Although a subsequent incident shows to the Octanti that former members of their own species are now part of the Cooperative, they still cannot bring themselves to cooperate, despite Ambassador Rerrick's growing sympathy for the Alliance and the Cooperative in particular.
The Octanti remain committed to their quest, attacking Borg vessels wherever they find them. Their ships are equipped with advanced phaser technology which allows them to hold their ground in battles against the Collective.
